ASEAN NCAP presented with a Prince Michael International Award

10 December 2019

ASEAN NCAP has been presented with a Prince Michael International Award for its Crash Test Laboratory at a prestigious ceremony held at The Savoy, London.

Hosted by the Malaysian Institute for Road Safety Research (MIROS), aims to elevate vehicle safety standards, raise consumer awareness, and build a market for safety across South East Asia. In 2012, it inaugurated its own crash test laboratory MIROS with technical support provided by Australasian NCAP and Euro NCAP. With support from Global NCAP some 100 crash tests have been conducted covering 90% of the market. One in ten cars in the region now have been rated and pleasingly 90% of the cars are rated 4 or 5 stars.

The other winner under the Safer Vehicles category was:

The Transport Research Laboratory - for its Support for The European Commission Pedestrian and General Safety Regulations. Since 2014, the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), has worked with the European Commission to assess the feasibility, costs and benefits of over 50 safety measures to update mandatory new vehicle safety standards in Europe. Bringing together all stakeholders, the team identified a package of measures that offers maximum casualty benefit while being cost-effective for society. This package, which will be incorporated into the Pedestrian and General Safety Regulations and is predicted to save 25,000 lives in EU-28 over the next 16 years.
